COVID-19: Three Nigerian Innovators Invent A Solar Powered Ventilator From Their Room
Three Young Innovators from Benue state Nigeria, invent a Solar powered ventilator to fight Covid19 from their room.
The young men are by names Joseph Orya, Joshua Ichor, and iorfa.
Speaking with news media in makurdi, the young men stated that, there has been a lot of attention on making high-tech ventilators for well-resourced countries, but there is also a need to think about places where there's no access to high-tech equipment and resources are limited.
The S-Vent is a simple ventilator they have designed to try and help with the current COVID-19 pandemic. It is designed to use basic components and materials so that it can be produced anywhere without the need for 3D printing or machining.
It is fully solar-powered, allowing it to operate in off-grid villages.
